One Hundred Joyful Messages

If you’re feeling sad and blue, I have the perfect cure for you!

Dedicate one hundred days to contemplating joy;

If you do, you’ll find what’s true, and be no longer blue!

Then spread, and increase joy, through sharing joy;

Changing the world one joyless heart at a time; It’s true!

That Jesus loves you! He blesses His with lasting joy!

 

This is my one hundredth post of indestructible joy! The kind of joy found only, by faith in Jesus. My blog is four months old with 121 WordPress followers, 315 google+ followers, and over 600 comments. I appreciate every person that those stats represent and I want to thank all of you for supporting me and helping me spread the joy of Jesus.

I decided to dedicate my blog to joy because at the time, I needed reminding of the joy I have in Jesus. The circumstances of my life are not altogether happy and I was in need of a way to rise above my problems. For me, writing is often a form of prayer where the things that trouble me and the promises of God meet. When I meditate on God’s Word and write, I gain God’s perspective on my problems and though I may not be able to solve them, I find what I need to endure and wait on God for the final outcome. I find hope. Sharing what I write enables me to touch the lives of others with the very same messages that God whispers to me personally, in my spiritual ears. The feedback I receive validates my personal experience and binds my heart with others whose wisdom and encouragement I also, treasure. Blogging is relational and in my mind, blogging is one of the best ways to share Jesus and come to know the hearts of other believers. After one hundred days of contemplating joy and sharing joy, I am greatly encouraged! Reaching for joy and sharing joy is the right prescription for good, spiritual health.

The Bible describes the joy of Jesus as inexpressible and I believe that to mean that I will never run out of messages to write about joy. Joy is the right attitude for believers in Christ and attitude relates to everything. I look forward to the next one hundred posts and Lord willing, hundreds more in the days to come. I have discovered so many new aspects of joy during the last four months and I hope you have too. Thank you for reading “www.joyindestructible.com”.

  2. I wish for you a father’s wish for his son which I heard as a boy and never forgotten. They had met after being estranged for some time. I’m just changing the words slightly – “Carry on my friend, carry on.” May God bless you in this endeavor. [What do you suppose the father had said to his son?]
